Giulia Zanderighi holds a post as Professor of Physics at the Rudolf Peierls Centre for Theoretical Physics, and is a tutorial fellow at Wadham College. Following a Laurea degree at the Università degli Studi di Milano and a PhD at the Università degli Studi di Pavia (Italy), she has held posts at the Institute for Particle Physics Phenomenology in Durham (UK), at Fermilab in Batavia (Illinois, US) and at CERN (Switzerland). In 2012 Professor Zanderighi was awarded the Friedrich Wilhelm Bessel-Forschungspreis, and in 2013 won a consolidator ERC grant. From January 2014 she started a staff position at CERN, and currently is on a five year leave from Oxford.
Professor Zanderighi’s main field of interest is the phenomenology of elementary particles, in particular the LHC and collider phenomenology. She has been working on fixed order perturbative (NLO) QCD calculations for multi-particle processes, on all orders resummations of logarithmic enhanced contributions, on the physics of jets and event shapes, on unstable particles using an effective theory description, on heavy flavour production, on Higgs and electroweak physics.
